Father, Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
ON THE PRAYER
God Our Father,
help me to be Your loving, attentive
and dutiful child.
May I always speak Your Holy Name
and hold You close in my heart.
Let me seek always to know Your will
and to be obedient in all things,
to follow Your commands,
and to be Your loving son
and your humble servant in the world.
Thank you for the abundance of all things
which You have given me:
my faith and trust in You,
security, food, shelter, clothes,
good health, sanity, a sound body
in a sound mind, education,
intellectual curiosity, logic,
a free country, loyal friends,
faith, hope, and charity.
Please forgive all my sins of commission
and of omission: neglect, anger, distraction, jealousy,
every evil thought, word and deed unworthy of a son
Let me hold no hatred in my heart,
and no anger at any person for any faults,
real or perceived.
Let me judge no other person
for judgment is Yours alone.
You know, Lord,
that I am weak.
Please guard me against the temptations
of the world, the flesh, and Satan.
All this I pray in confidence,
hope and love.
